Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo will join up with English Premier League side Chelsea for pre-season training ahead of next season.
Omeruo has been on loan at Dutch club ADO Den Haag from Chelsea for the past one and half seasons.
Top representatives of the central defender informed MTNFootball.com that the 19-year-old defender has begun processing his travel papers to train with Chelsea ahead of the new season.
“Kenneth has begun processing his papers to allow him join Chelsea for pre-season in the summer,” one of the player’s handlers disclosed.
“There will most likely be some changes at Chelsea and it would be after those changes that one would really know whether he will now stay at Chelsea or be loaned out again.”
Last year, Omeruo failed to join up with ‘The Blues’ for pre-season training in the United States of America because he could not get an entry visa to the USA in good time.
Omeruo, who has made 26 appearances and scored two goals since his arrival in January 2012, featured for ADO Den Haag in central defence on Sunday as they beat Feyenoord 2-0.
“He was very excited with his performance as a central defender. This was most probably his last home match for ADO,” said the player’s representative.
Omeruo’s Dutch club are ninth on the table with 40 points from 33 matches and play their final game of the campaign on Sunday at PEC Zwolle.
Chelsea already have two Nigeria stars in their ranks – midfielder Mikel Obi and winger Victor Moses.
